Did you know that Halloween time in Walt Disney World is just days away? While it may not feel quite like fall, spooky, or really not-so-spooky, season is upon us as the first evening of Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is scheduled for Friday, August 11, 2023!
Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is known for its festive fall treats and snacks and exciting entertainment. With several opportunities to see the Hocus Pocus Villian Spelltacular Stage Show, a dance party at Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Café featuring characters from Disney Junior, and Cadaver Dans Barbershop Quartet appearing in Frontierland, guests will not be short on things to do and see! Add in many characters appearing in their Halloween costumes and low wait times on all of the open attractions, each evening of Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is sure to be a fun-filled night.
With all of the above already added to your party itinerary, two entertainment offerings that draw the largest crowds are the Boo To You Parade and Disney’s Not-So-Spooky Nighttime Spectacular. Showtimes for the parade and fireworks for the 2023 parties have now been confirmed. Patrons may view the Boo To You Parade at two different times during the party at 9:15PM and 11:15PM. This can’t-miss procession is one-of-a-kind led by the Headless Horseman and featuring a variety of Disney Villains, Hitchhiking Ghosts, Minnie, Daisy, and Clarabelle dressed as the sisters from Hocus Pocus, and many more Disney pals appearing in costume. If you plan to stay for the duration of the party, consider watching the parade at the second showing as it is usually less crowded. The duration of the parade is approximately 20 minutes.
In between parade times, guests can pick up a snack from Main Street U.S.A. as they wait for Disney’s Not-So-Spooky Nighttime Spectacular to begin at 10:15PM. Hosted by Jack Skellington and starring Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Goofy, watch their mysterious visit to a haunted house unfold through the use of projections, lasers, lights and fireworks.
Both the Boo To You Parade and nighttime spectacular are weather dependent, so while they are scheduled at set times, rain and thunderstorms could delay or even cancel their showings. During the night of your party, it is important to stay informed via the My Disney Experience App as well as communicate with cast members if you have any concerns.
